C. The Math Olympiad program opened for enrollment on September 1st, already with 40 students pre-registered, all of whom were 5th-graders who participated the year before. On each day starting from (and including) September 1st, through word of mouth, more students signed up. Each day, 3 fourth-graders and 1 fifth-grader signed up. At the end of which day did the ratio of 4th-graders to 5th-graders first exceed 2– to –3? Please give the answer as a single number which is the day of the monthwhen the condition is met (e.g. if it is September 25th, the answer is 25).


P.S. You don't have to solve every problem. If you finish only one, it would still be great!


D. There were 3 printers in the workroom. One was very slow, one was faster, and onewas very fast. They were nicknamed Sloth, Monkey, and Cheetah. Ms. Morrison needed to print a large number of pages, and she knew that if she could use two of the printers, she could finish the job in 45, 60, or 90 minutes, depending on which two printers were available.What if she could use all 3 at the same time? How many minutes would it take to finish printing?
